When you start building AR pistols things get picky. Everything from the gas system, to hanging onto that sucker has to be spot-on for it to be fun to run. Do yourself a favor and don't cut corners when it comes to anything, especially the pistol buffer tube assembly. Save time, money, and frustration and start out with a Strike Industries pistol buffer tube assembly.

The Shortest AR Pistol Buffer Tube

When you subject all of the stress from a full-sized cartridge on an AR pistol short buffer tube you're asking a lot. A Strike Industries Pistol Buffer Tube is one that is built to handle it. The Strike Industries pistol buffer tube assembly is all top-quality, designed to reliably deliver you a lifetime of service. Additionally, it's one of the shortest AR pistol buffer tube you can find. At just over five inches, your AR pistol is much more manageable, especially if you employ a brace. Strike Industries went for the highest quality 7075-T6 aluminum to create the shortest AR pistol buffer tube possible for your build.

This AR Pistol Short Buffer Tube Plays Well with Others

The Strike Industries Pistol Buffer Tube is the few models to include a QD sling mount point conveniently at its rear. When you're talking about the finite amount of real estate on an AR pistol, every built-in option counts. The Strike AR pistol short buffer tube contains a flat-wire buffer spring. This is arguably the finest choice for strength and reliability. Topping it off is a pistol-weight, tungsten filled buffer for smooth cycling. Of course, the Strike Industries pistol buffer tube assembly is compatible with the Strike Industries Viper Pistol Stabilizer as well as other popular braces on the market.

  • Looking good

    Haven't shot it yet, but so far I really the way it look, hopefully no crazy recoil, it a alternative for a brace I can't get due to ATF ruling.

  • Short buffer is way to go!

    Since the moronic rules that the atf recently put out I figured this would go a long way towards no looking like a rifle. Amazingly this little guy cycles both 300BLK and 223/556 rounds with no problem. It's well made, looks nice and functions nicely. Good Wing bringing these items to us at a time when no one quite understands the squidbillies in DC.

  • Short buffer

    I gave 3 stars because it cycled reliable in a 300blk pistol 8.5. but.... The recoil was absolutely insane I had to remove. I'm sure it has its place but it's not on 300blk firing supersonics. It's very nicely made however.
